Resize your image before posting - instructions
« on: April 17, 2015, 03:57:56 PM »
I have made a simple instruction how to resize pictures before you post it.
It is very frustrating when people post pictures that is so big it is impossible to read the replies on that whole page normally.


I used the ultimate image editing software - Microsoft Paint. It is available on all computers running Windows.


Here it goes in pictures step by step.


When you have resized the image, choose "Save as" if you don't want to destroy the original image.
Then post your image.


Cheers

Low-Q,

Try this if you have Firefox or one of its clones.

You do need to do each oversized pic,, but it helps.

I think this one came from TK.

If you upload a picture that's too large that stretches the page all you need to do is clear the attachment to shrink it again.

This page should be locked as the first thread of the home page. It has always been a bone of contention ,threads can become totally useless.  :o Old people :-\

Vidar:

Well done.  I hope now everyone will use this, or any other method to keep images the correct size.

We should keep bumping this topic to keep it on the top of the home page.

As mentioned, if too large a photo is posted, it is easily removed by selecting "Modify" and then "(Clear Attachment)"
and then resize and attach again.

I use the Gimp, it's free, available for all platforms (I usually work on Linux boxen) and is nearly full PhotoShop in terms of capability.

Whatever you use... use _something_ to keep your maximum image width under 1024 pixels wide. 800 pixels wide is usually plenty. If you need to show some detail, crop it out from the larger image and show that cropped detail.

I use mtPaint to add notations, just because it's so easy. It will also resize but personally I like the Gimp for everything except annotations.

And I'm old!

As long as you do it within the "edit time window" which is not that long. After the time has expired you can't edit your posts any more.

I use irfanview and a bunch of other graphics programs regularly, since I practice the arcane art of astrophotography. I even use PixInsight for a lot of things. But for simple cropping and resizing, white-balance correction, etc. the Gimp rules in terms of ease-of-use.

Quick unrelated question -  What is the easiest/best video editing software that I can also add notations and such with? (or combo of programs)?
I really, really need to learn how to do it.. It's something I've never bothered to do, so I know nothhhhingggggg!

Free, of course....

I use OpenShot, and make annotations and titles both solid background and transparent background, for it using mtPaint. OpenShot is very versatile and has lots of options and is pretty easy to use. It even does key-frame animations, and can make stop-motion videos from a directory full of numbered still images. The only drawback is that it sometimes crashes on my system, so I have developed the habit of clicking the "save" icon after every change I make in the video I'm editing. I use it to make all my videos. The output file size can be large, especially in HD formats (there are many output formats to choose from) so I generally do another stage of transcoding on the OpenShot output, with WinFF.

I downloaded Paint.Net on another computer I have that has been running slow lately - specially on Adobe Photoshop.
In Paint.Net you can add layers so you can edit parts of an image, also delete objects without affecting the content on the other layers.
It is for free, and I find it quite functional. Many other functions in it too.
You can save your multi layer image as a JPEG by "Flattening" the image first (Merging the layers into one background layer - which is not longer a layer...).
